Seasonal Contrast in the Garden #2

Seasonal Contrast in the - Gardens at Waters East

Postings in this ongoing series will show the same garden “area” and “objects” at two or more different times / seasons of the year.  The contrast will offer the viewer an appreciation of the beauty found in the same spot but in different months.  Some of the photos have never been seen before, others were collected from earlier postings in order to provide the needed contrast.  Each season has its own “feeling”, has its own  beauty.

This posting shows the area known as The Rock Garden, one of thirteen garden "rooms" in the Gardens at Waters East.  The rocks are Niagara Escarpment.  The Locus trees were started from seeds nine years ago and are presently over 16 ft tall. The driftwood was brought up from the beach. The planting are varied perennial.

  1. I'm puzzled why you have chosen this format, Jack. When you have photos of such a beautiful garden, why don't you post some of them bigger?
